David Slater (born November 22, 1962) is an American singer and songwriter.


Slater was the male vocalist champion on TV's Star Search in 1987. Slater then signed a recording contract with Capitol Records and launched a country music career. He released two albums on Capitol in the late 1980s, Exchange of Hearts and Be with Me. Both albums were produced by Randy Scruggs. Several of Slater's radio singles including "I'm Still Your Fool" and "The Other Guy" reached the top 40 on Billboard and other charts.[1] Notable backup singers on Slater's Capitol albums include Vince Gill and members of Australian rock band, Little River Band.

Slater is based in Dallas, Texas. In addition to his own music, he specializes in legendary pop and jazz standards made famous by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole and others. His 2012 album, As Time Goes By, is a tribute to the entertainers and songwriters of that golden era.
